“In terms of both, value and volume, the banknotes segment is projected to lead the security paper market from 2018 to 2023.”
The banknotes segment is projected to lead the security paper market from 2018 to 2023, in terms of both, value and volume. From the technological viewpoint, banknotes are the most complex as well as prestigious value security papers. They are generally manufactured with cotton-fiber paper, polymer, or hybrid paper. This makes the banknotes robust and more resistant to wear and tear, as compared to common paper. Nowadays, special types of polymers are used to manufacture banknotes, as they have a better shelf life than paper notes and are resistant to fire and water. To prevent counterfeiting activities, the government of each country incorporates numerous security features in a single banknote. Watermarks, holograms, security threads, intaglio printing, and inks are some security features that are inserted in banknotes during the manufacturing process. The constant printing, circulation, and reprinting of banknotes, coupled with the rising number of cases pertaining to counterfeit notes are projected to drive the demand for security papers for banknotes.
